The whole outfit will weigh half what a spey will and seriously if you can't get the distance you need with the switch check with RFA for options.

If that's the case then you need to get one of these. It strips the line in for you!

Everything showed up today..........well, almost everything. I forgot to order some running line, so that fuck up will cost me another week. Oh well, I wanted to go to the river today, but it is snowing and pretty nasty out.

We went out Sunday and things started clicking. I tried casting with my right hand (dominant) on the bottom-this really seemed to help with the cast. Line started to shoot and shit got real in a hurry. Beaner told me there was a black mark on the running line and if I was getting out that far, I was casting some line.......I saw the black mark outside the tip of the rod-I smiled.

It's supposed to snow until Friday....if the new line doesn't show by then, I'm breaking out the Amnesia.

Amnesia works just fine.

What did you order?

I'm off to fish with an old man and a conspiracy theorist for the rest of the week but can send you some ridge line when I get back. It's a poly coated type so you lose some distance but it's much easier to learn with.

The AF ridge 30 is my favorite by far for handling. Basically braid core small diameter fly line.
